The 22-year-old's grandmother is the sister of the Duchess’s great grandfather Thomas Harrison, making her Kate’s second cousin, once removed, The Sun revealed.

Darling is reportedly learning how to breathe fire for the finale of two shows dubbed Royal Dreams, which she will perform in Miami's Dream Hotel.

Darling's show has a distinct Royal theme

In June Daring told RumorFix she had not yet met her royal cousin, but admitted it would be “really awkward to meet Kate. I’m not sure what I would say in that sort of situation.

“But I’m sure we would find something to laugh about in it all. “

Of Kate’s new brother-in-law Prince Harry, Darling said: “I’m sure Prince Harry is an adorable guy, but I am a taken woman and Eton College men are not my cup of tea – too prestigious. I like my men rough around the edges.”

She told the paper: “I wasn’t into the whole ‘I am Kate Middleton’s cousin’ thing, but the media picked it up and just went with it. In a way it’s helped with PR, but I’ve worked extremely hard anyway.”
